Your wedding day should be one of the most memorable days of your life. While there is nothing wrong with designing your wedding by yourself, you still need to make sure that you can actually pull it off. Styling a wedding is not a simple task, especially a wedding in France. It requires a great deal of creativity and a great eye for detail. All details, big and small, will affect the overall appearance and feel of your wedding. Therefore, it is imperative that all of your wedding elements work well together. The following tips will help you style your dream wedding in France and make it as stress-free as possible.
Pick Out the Perfect Colour Palette
The colour palette is one of the most essential aspects of your wedding design. With so many colours to choose from, it can be extremely difficult to choose just a few for your wedding. Think about you and your significant other’s favourite colours. It's also worth taking a look at your wardrobe to see the colours that you wear the most. This can, at least, help you figure out whether you prefer softer or bolder colours. By picking just one colour that you love the most, you can then pair it with complementary colours. Remember, the right colour palette will elevate and enhance the whole look and style of your wedding.
Create a Mood Board
Creating a mood board is a great way to help you see how well the different elements of your wedding will work together. This can be in the form of either a digital or physical mood board. If you prefer digital, you can create one on applications such as Pages, Word, or Adobe Photoshop. As for a physical board, you can fill it with printed wedding ideas and magazine clippings. Your mood board can be modified as your wedding design progresses.
Select the Right Venue
Your venue is going to determine the overall look and feel of your wedding. It’s therefore important to choose a location that feels right for you and your partner. When it comes to getting married in France, the first thing most people think of is a beautiful château. There are also lots of other options though, such as stunning country houses, vineyards and converted barns. Wedding venues in France can be surprisingly affordable and with onsite accommodation for your guests, your wedding celebrations can be extended into a weekend or even longer.
The location and architecture of your venue should ideally match your overall wedding design. Choosing your venue should therefore be one of the first decisions that you make during the planning process. This will ensure that your next decisions - such as the theme, furniture, and decor - will be based on the venue that you have chosen. Regardless of what you choose, make sure that your furniture and decor complement your venue.
Always Consider Your Theme
Once you have picked a theme for your wedding, try to stick with it throughout the design process. As there are so many gorgeous furniture and decor pieces, it can be difficult to eliminate ones that do not fit into your theme.
If you find something you love that does not fit into your overall theme, try to look for other similar items that work better for your wedding design. If a certain element does not exactly fit the theme but is extremely important to you however, then you should just go for it! After all, it is your wedding, and you should be able to do as you please.
